JR – The Wrinkles of Los Angeles – Art in the StreetsArt, Culture — By JGM Staff on October 24, 2012 at 1:01 am
Early in the year, JR was in Los Angeles for his Wrinkles of the City project. In this new video, which offers a behind-the-scenes look at the project, we get a look at the French artist in action. Enjoy.
“JR links the memory of the elderly and the architecture of the cities marked by the scars of history, their economic development, their socio-cultural changes. By meeting and photographing these people to paste their portraits on the walls, JR imagines the wrinkles on their faces as the marks of time, traces of life mixing with the history of the city.”
